September 29: How We Choose our Beliefs – The word “beliefs” and “our beliefs” get bandied about as being fundamental to the core of who we are. Yet almost no one can even give a credible definition (Webster doesn’t) of beliefs, let alone the process by which we allow ideas/emotions into our acceptance of “truth”. The process that is so integral to our well-being and determines how we feel and function in life is relegated to a hodgepodge of unconscious processes that have little basis in logic or rational thought. In this respect UU is no different than other religions or the secular community. This class will illuminate the process and provide tools that allow for a more rational means of choosing how we interpret our world. Discussion leader: Brian Wilson.
